Steve Richter holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree, both in sociology, where he primarily studied race relations in the United States and in both Anglophone and Francophone Canadians contexts. Steve began his career in the NGO sector at Pathways to Education Canada, where his role was primarily to analyse data from the program sites located in Quebec. Next, he joined a consulting firm, AgentsC, who specialises in the creation of philanthropic strategies for non-profits. As the Manager, Research and Philanthropy, he used his expertise in research and evaluation to support AgentsC clients in better structuring their evaluation strategies. Steve’s lifelong passion is to make sure that research contributes to a more just and equitable society. From supporting Canadian youth, to NGOs, and finally to workers, Steve’s professional background has always focused on helping to prepare people for the future. He is excited to begin his work at the Future Skills Centre.
